From the Book Back
When Sara Crewe first entered Miss Minchin’s boarding school, she had everything a girl could want — a pretty room and a pony, beautiful dresses and her beloved Emily, who was much more than a doll. And her father had promised her that in no time at all they would be together again. Sara truly looked like a little princess, and, as the “show pupil,” she was treated like one. Then, without warning, her whole world changed. Instead of lovely clothes she wore tatters, and she was forced to work at the hardest, meanest jobs for every scrap of bread she ate. The dramatic changes in Sara’s life, and how she finally triumphed, with the help of a mysterious stranger, make a wonderful story that has brought tears and laughter to generations of readers.

Generally sent the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will wrap the book in plastic wrap to help protect it from the elements, create a custom-made cardboard box to ship it in, and send via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation tracking. See the shipping page for the cost to send a one-pound Media Mail package. Insurance is an additional cost as described. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
